It’s going to create some problems, both personal and professional.
For starters, Sherlock made a mistake when he decided to keep his condition from Joan. He’ll have a lot to explain and a lot to make up for.

There will be times he’ll question whether he can tackle one problem without succumbing to the other. And, of course, there will be an impact on his work.
